Jason Silva, host of Brain Games on the National Geographic Channel, talked to Brian about his hit TV show and the intricate logic that serves as its premise. Silva also explained that the human brain is drawn to drama and tragedy. “We believe that the world is in constant danger. We have a media environment where if it bleeds it leads. We pay attention and we look and amplify any instance of danger,” Silva explained. He also talked about the role social media plays in traumatic experiences, and said that it “amplifies and amputates” at the same time.
